Ps 118:5-14

5Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.6With the Lord on my side I do not fear. What can mortals do to me?7The Lord is on my side to help me; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.8It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals.9It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. 10All nations surrounded me; in the name of the Lord I cut them off!11They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side; in the name of the Lord I cut them off!12They surrounded me like bees; they blazed like a fire of thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them off!13I was pushed hard, so that I was falling, but the Lord helped me.14The Lord is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.
